it was supposed to be, was it? joining me is republican strategist john feary and democratic strategist bob shrum. did you hear that feehery. the republican party can no longer count on white voters to carry them in elections. it dropped two points from 2008 numbers from 72% -- actually went to 72% from 74%. while the minority percentages steadily is rising. here is how the 2012 election broke down by racial group. president obama won just 39% of the white vote down from 49% last time but he outperforms by so much in other demeanor graphic groups he overcomes. obama got 93% of the black vote on tuesday, 71% of the latino vote. that's a big difference from the way "w" did the. "w" did pretty well among latino voters and he got 73% of the asian vote. bob shrum, i want to start with this. we all know looking around and who we know, the country is changing. a lot more people moving to this country from the south, less so from europe, more from asia, south asia, india, pakistan, from the far east, the asian pacific. this is getting to be more like the world. >> i think part of the tea party reaction,
a fear of possible economic collapse is a recurring theme. speaker of the house john boehner seem interested in a compromise with democrats that could keep the country from plunging off the so-called fiscal cliff. while florida is still official officially too close to call even without its 29 collect 29 electoral college votes mr. obama won with a hefty 303 electoral votes but a mere 53% of the popular votes begging the question, was it a mandate or a draw. the president promised to reach out to leaders of both parties. speaker boehner appeared to be ready to take him up on his offer with hundreds of billions in tax hikes that could tank the economy, boehner staked out this position on behalf of his caucus. >> for the purposes of bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. what matters is where the increase revenue comes from and what type of reform comes with it. >> eliot: a few hours earlier harry reid also called for compromise. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everyth
reid and move on to john boehner. [video clip] >> they are tired of partisan gridlock. i have one goal, to be obama. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to reach a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have with the huge deficit. taxes are a part of that. >> the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama, and every elected a republican majority. if there was a mandate, it is a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. my message today is not one of confrontation, but one of conviction. mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's do the right thing together for our country. host: ron, you are up first. what was the message to washington? caller: i really think co
. what struck me yesterday with john boehner he was saying as we approach the fiscal cliff, boehner was saying yesterday that the bottom line for republicans after this election is the same as it's been for 22 years. that is, that any kind of income tax hike, especially for the wealthy, is off the table for them. do you have a sense of what the white house is thinking is on the table? we approach january 1st. is it that they are really eager mainly to strike a grand bargain they can sell as a major bipartisan achievement? is the idea of fighting past january 1st if necessary to get rid of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy americans more of a priority for them? >> no. i think they want a deal if they can get it. you're right to listen closely to john boehner, because what he had is he'll accept some revenues in the context of tax reform, a big, wonderful, fuzzy nebulous idea. what he won't expect initially is a change in the rates. of course, that's what it's about. it's about the rates for the highest income earners. and that's where john boehner is refusing to start out in the nego
john boehner talking about the fact on the issue that has divided them on the fiscal cliff issue saying clearly that he does not want to raise taxes. he did say that maybe he would be for some kind of raising some kind of revenue. he didn't say what that means but talked about broad tax reform. on the other side of the capital. you saw right there the senate majority leader harry reid feeling like he has leverage here, it was a clear-cut issue, but also because of the mechanics of it. if nobody does anything, taxes will go up. so democrats realize that, they feel like they are probably right. democrats realize that. >> and there is motivation to do something. >> absolutely. >> there was a private conference call that boehner had with his caucus. what do you know about it? >> we were told this was a call where all house republicans were on it. he was sober and he tried to buck everyone up and said that s we are the last line of defense from an american that barack obama would design. he also had a clear message for rank and file. hold your fire. i need to have running room. i need to hav
congressional leaders in both parties to talk about his agenda. house speaker john boehner responded this afternoon. >> and for this to work, we need to plan for a serious process. focus on substance, not on the at it will require week of work rather than a weekend of photo op. it won't happen around a campfire at camp david or as much i'd like over 18 holes of golf. i think this is going to take time, but if we're all striving for a solution, i'm confident we can get one. >> chris van hollen, a member of the supercommittee on deficit reduction. he knows a lot. good to see you in person. >> it's great to be here. >> we're all running on fumes and now, we have to get on those fumes and solve this problem because the market is right. it is a crisis and it has to be dealt with. what i don't understand is, a little change in the senate, but -- why is it going to happen now. >> first of all, a lot of the republicans in congress have been focused primarily, maybe we can move beyond that objective. the second is the structure of the situation. the cliff creates big risks, also, opportunitie
that will automatically go into effect at the end of the year. speaker of the house john boehner opened the door yesterday to getting the deal done and striking a more conciliatory tone. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or a conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> meantime, senate majority leader harry reid said he is open to working together too, but there was a but. >> i'm going to do everything within my power to be as conciliatory as possible. i want to work together. but i want everyone to also understand you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> let me bring in legendary investigative journalist carl bernstein and political reporter for "the washington post" nia ma malika henderson. good morning to you. everybody is sounding cordial, but we still have the same players.
mandate mandate. that's what i tell to the republicans. john boehner came in today. >> involves making real changes to the financial structure of the entitlement programs and close loopholes and deductions working together to create a fair simpler cleaner tax code we can give our country a stronger healthier economy. a stronger economy means more revenue which is what the president seeks. because the american people expect us to find common ground we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reform. >> cenk: now that sounds good, right? additional revenues, it sounds like--no no, no. in other words what he's saying i might close some of the loopholes and then i'll put loopholes within the loopholes but i won't touch tax rates. if i was president obama john i got news for you. we won you lost. you want to do it again? you wanting to through this two years from now? have at it, hoss, go for it. no no, i said we would be getting rid of the bush tax cuts for the rich. i did not stutter. i got elected. i got 320 electoral votes that i'll ram down your throat. no we're going to r
.s. state. we will speak with the nation magazine's john nichols president of his new mandate for the next four years. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. president obama return to the white house on wednesday hours after his convincing win over republican challenger mitt romney in the 2012 election. aides say obama has immediately turned to the so-called fiscal cliff of $700 billion in expiring tax cuts and automatic spending reductions set to take effect at the end of the year. under the terms of last year's debt deal, obama and senate democrats must agree on a deficit reduction package with house republicans or face automatic cuts that will likely contract the economy. on wednesday, both senate majority leader harry reid and house speaker john boehner pledged to negotiate in good faith. >> the american people want us to work together. republicans and democrats want us to work together. they want a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have dealing with this huge deficit and taxe
kumbaya tune. but when you got down to the next center, of course there was a but, you heard john boehner in particular, talking about the fact that on the issue that has divided them over the past year or so on this fiscal cliff issue, taxes, saying very clearly he does not want to raise taxes. but he also put out an olive branch, anderson, he said maybe he would be for some kind of -- raising some kind of revenue. he didn't say what that means but talked about broad tax reform as it relates to entitlement reform. on the other side of the capital. you saw right there the senate majority leader harry reid feeling like he has leverage here, it was a clear-cut issue, but also because of the mechanics of it. if nobody does anything, taxes for everybody will go up. so democrats realize that, they feel like they are probably right. >> and there's motivation to try to do something on that. >> exactly. >> there was a private conference call that boehner had with his caucus. what do you know about it? >> we were told this was a call where all house republicans were invited to this. he was very so
fleming and john miller. >> now, all along the parade route this song that echoed through the ballpark and my broadcast partner on the radio dave fleming somehow has involuntary reaction to it. a lot of people think he's so into it. whenever the music comes on he can't contain himself. it's not even that and i'm going to show you it right now. >> i'm not sure where you're going with this john. >> it's uncontrollable for him so he's not really into even the thought of it but i want to show you what really happens. we seen him do it so many times in the ballpark. along the parade route they were pleading for him to do it. >> i don't know. >> so really -- now keep your eyes on dave. watch what happens when i say "oh gangom style". >> john, can do it with me too. >> okay, okay. i can't help it. [cheers and applause] now, another thing that occurred to us was that giants winning on the road the way they did, the one thing the giants' players really missed was that ability to share it with all of you, and we thought because they're right in the back here we could give them that feelin
but jon but-off -- but speaker of the house john boehner congratulated the president while offering to work with president obama. >> if there is a mandate it is for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we face as a nation. >> john boehner addressed the budget cuts to the pentagon and some programs that will begin next year. both republicans and democrats have said they will try to avoid those so-called fiscal cliff budget cuts at all costs. >>> the day after the election wall street took a beating. [ bell ] >> the white house is staying blue but stocks were in the red. the dow is down 312 to 12,932. its 81st worst day of the year. take a look. the dow lost 313 points today. the day after president obama was elected in 2008 it dropped 486 points. the market always doesn't move down following presidential elections. when bill clinton was reelected it rose 96 points. >>> voters approved a sales tax increase to fund county programs. it would raise $50 million each year for programs like the medical center and public health and welfare. san jose's minimum

guest: john boehner said he was looking for a golf game with the president. i do not know, talking to the obama campaign during the election, they were confronting an angry set of voters, even those who supported them. the theatrics in washington -- we have heard a lot of callers talk about this. i don't know if they have a place right now. this is an extremely urgent thing they have to address. it could have real consequences on recovery, really end it, and i do not think we will see a lot of that. i do not think the president wants to strike that tone. i think it will be pretty serious. it does not mean they will not try to get together in some kind of setting, but i do not think it will be seen the light it was in summer 2011. host: we want to thank our two white house reporters. thank you both for being here. that does it for today's "washington journal." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. with more of your questions and comments via phone and twitter. thanks for watching. host: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satell

in washington. >> i think the good news for the country is that john boehner and his president actually have a pretty good relationship. they like each other. that's a really good starting point. it's something you don't see in washington these days. and all you see between democrats and republicans is acrimony. i think boehner set a great signal yesterday. i think the person who called boehner yesterday and said let's get back to work is a big deal. >> i want to ask you. do the american voters really get the attention of the gop now? do they send a clear message that misogynistic, bigoted, homophobic candidate es just dot fly. how do they get the party back on track? >> losing does a lot more parties, and spending time in the desert does a lot toward figuring out how to get to water. the republican party obviously has a lot of work to do, but i'm encouraged they will get the message, that we understand we've got to be a larger tent. we can't continue to just go after a shrinking -- trying to expand a shrinking demographic and recognize we need more tolerance, more diversity, and more polici
armageddon. i guess first signal came for john boehner who was open to revenues, b that, taxes, let the kabuki theater begin. >> it did. you know hours after president obama secured reelect, top congressional democrat, harry reid reaffirmed democrat tax agenda, those makg more should pay more. >> people who make more than a million dolrs a year, the vast majority of them are happy to pay that. only place that people disagree are republican in congress. >> repter: he and democrats, namely the president, want a tax increase on families earning more than $250,000 a year, reed hemmed a series of votes this year on only income of more than a million dollars. meanwhile, house speaker john boehner unprompted said that republicans are willing to spam examine more tax revenue. >> for the purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions, what matters is where the increased revenue comes from and what type of reform comes witht. >> reporter: those conditions broad-based individual tax reform, republican
john boehner says he has gotten the message. >> because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reform. there's a model for tax reform that supports economic growth. >> reporter: does that mean house republicans are now willing to accept higher taxes on those making more than $250,000? not exactly. boehner says he will only raise more money from taxes under what he called the right conditions. >> does the increased revenue come from government taking a larger share of what the american people earn through higher tax rates? or does it come as a bi-product of growing our economy, energized by a simpler cleaner fairer tax code with fewer loopholes and lower rates for all. >> reporter: democratic senate leader harry reid also says he wants a quick fix for the fiscal cliff. but, he was clearly feeling empowered by a strong showing in the election. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to understand you can't push us around. >> reporter: and raising taxes on the well-off is clearly a top priority. >> all the ex
'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, rick snyder in michigan, tom corbett in pennsylvania, rick scott in florida. let's not forget bob mcdonnell in virginia. and of course, scott walker in washington. what do they all -- sorry, wisconsin. what do they all have in common? they pursued an agenda to limit the rights of workers in their states so they could balance the budget, but also break up the unions. their agenda, last night, was rejected by the people in their state. you know what they all got in common? all of their states went blue. i guess we could say, well, thank you, governors, for defining the republican party for us. it made voting a lot easier for a lot of americans, like these voters, the radical agenda of the right was defeated by these people, the folks who were willing to stay in line, the voter who is made sure that their voices were heard. it didn't matter how long those lines were. they were determined. it didn't matter how hard the republicans tried the to suppress their votes. these americans put it on the line. and they put it together
with the republican speaker john boehner signaling he may be ready for a deal. so conservatives are warning while the president does not have to face the voters again, congressional democrats will in two years. tax hikes could come back to haunt them. >> i think he is going to require increase in tax rate on wealthy. that is his downfall. that is just makes no sense whatsoever. the wealthy are the people who hire everyone else. you can't love jobs and hate job creators. >> white house officials note the president campaigned on raising taxes and he won so he thinks he can sell it to the congressional democrats. meanwhile, the white house officials tonight say he will make the first post-election statement at the white house. tomorrow afternoon, talk about the economy, fiscal cliff. it doesn't look like he will take questions, not a full scale. post election news conference, though. it may be coming soon. >> bret: we'll cover it live on fox. thanks. what is the most pressing issue right now for president? let me know on twitter. follow me. @bretbaier. we kept you well fed with steady diet of polls
? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
and republican house speaker john boehner are talking about a new spirit of cooperation. but there are battles ahead and we have a team of correspondents covering this fresh start with old players in washington. first, nancy cordes with the president. >> reporter: the president and his family boarded air force one in chicago this afternoon after a visit to campaign headquarters where president obama embraced his campaign manager, jim messina, and elated staffers and volunteers. despite all the talk beforehand of a razor tight race, in the end president obama captured all but two of the states he won in 2008. i just spoke with governor romney and i congratulated him and paul ryan on a hard-fought campaign. (applause) we may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future. >> reporter: before a cheering crowd of thousands in south chicago, president obama laid out an ambitious second-term agenda: deficit reduction, tax code reform, immigration reform, and energy independence. big goals that have inspired and divided the two partie
in the first block, actually there was hope today. you had house speaker john boehner who actually opened a door that many people thought was shut. >> for the purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. >> jennifer: what? so does speaker boehner mean what he says? here to answer that question and more, is host of "viewpoint," and former new york governor eliot spitzer. welcome inside "the war room." >> i like being here. >> jennifer: i was just railing about the far-right republicans -- >> i heard you from miles away. >> jennifer: but despite the denial, john boehner gave this statement today to suggest that revenue could be a part of a grand bargain. >> yes, but -- there was classic boehner and cantor. it was quintessential republican double talk. we are now at the moment where you have got to put your cards on the table if you are going to get an agreement. it's now november. >> jennifer: but put their card on the table by saying we would consider revenue -- they said it's
